yeah it is - i've always done websites by hand but want to offere a cms
i got through JSON APIs and AJAX before taking a 1+ year break to go back to school

I set up one for my aunt before so she could use the cms to edit the pages. I really just customized the css a bit. It would be fun to make a theme :)
Wow that's wonderful!
I was learning through Treehouse last. I took a break from there though :)
Are you studying web design in school too?

I always had trouble finding a theme that does exactly what I want, hence learning custom theme dev
I recently finished associates in IT - Web Development
it covered basic design too

@lis22
Jun 13 2017 22:50
Good point, I also think making themes would be very in demand
congrats!

did you like treehouse?

Jun 13 2017 22:55
Hi @ccziriak! I tried the tech degree there out. The community was very nice and helpful when you got stuck. The projects were well thought out. It was a bit expensive though. I might go back to it :)

I looked at them for WordPress training but heard that part of their content was dated, so using Udemy and free trial of linkedin learning/lynda
lis22

Jun 13 2017 22:59
Oh I haven't tried their wordpress videos. I was just working on javascript there. But I really do like Udemy. My library also has lynda for free too. Are you making themes too? :)

Wish my library had lynda for free. still learning to make themes and my trial is running out soon
might cancel it and sign up for a monthly oaid account

Hmm I thought maybe the Philadelphia library had it too. Anyone in PA can register there. I use it for my kindle:) but it doesn't seem so. :/
Sooo sorry I got you mixed up for a second. Is there a way to customize the font size here?

@ccziriak
Jun 13 2017 23:23
Hmm - I don't see a way to increase font size

zooming in/out on browser as a workaround?
lis22
@lis22
Jun 13 2017 23:31
Oh I was looking in the app. Good idea.. The app and browser seem the same to me otherwise. I just downloaded the app because I often accidently close tabs:) But maybe browser is better.
